Pipeworx Ltd. is a firm believer that incidents don’t just happen. Instead, incidents are caused by unsafe acts or unsafe conditions, or by a combination of unsafe acts and conditions. Vital to our due diligence is to assess hazards, eliminate or control them to prevent harmful events from taking place, and bring all risks, even if they may seem obvious, to the attention of personnel.
The steps that Pipeworx Ltd. will follow to correct unsafe conditions are as follows:
Eliminate hazards posed by equipment and work processes at the source. For example, redesign the work process, substitute a safer chemical for a hazardous chemical, or buy new equipment.
If it is impractical to eliminate the hazard, control it to reduce the risk to workers. Machine guards and noise enclosures are examples of controls.
If controls are impractical, protect workers from the hazard. Methods of protecting workers include personal protective equipment (PPE), job rotation, adequate training and supervision.
